Champion of Health Care Development

Dr. Harris Coulter


My writing about homeopathic medicine includes the name of Harris Coulter, Ph.D., medical historian. Dr. Coulter's writing has been a major influence on my own career in scientifically understanding Complementary and Alternative Medicine. See photo of Honored Guest presentation for him at a workshop I produced for Rudi Verspoor of the Hahnemann Center for Heilkunst.


A biography states: Dr. Coulter was born on October 8, 1932 in Baltimore, Maryland. In his  significant career he has made contributions in many areas, including cancer, vaccinations, and shedding light on the conflict between the AMA and Homeopathy. His fluency in many languages (German, French, Spanish, Latin, Russian, Hungarian, and Serbo-Croatian) has helped him to communicate to a wide audience..

"Medical historian Harris Coulter has made his book on the controlled clinical trial available for free download. This book examines the concept of the controlled trial and argues that it is not all it is cracked up to be."
